Linguistics is classified to theoretical linguistics and applied linguistics. Korean linguistics is also classified to two branches. Historically the applied linguistics can be retroactive to the linguistics of old countries. But the history of modern applied linguistics can be retroactive to Otto Jespersen, Henry Sweet, IPA, Esperanto, Jan Baudouin de Courtenay and etc. from 1880s. L. Bloomfield discussed the applied linguistics in the last chapter of his famous book 'Language'. From 1940s the applied linguistics have implied the language education, that is, language acquisition, contrastive analysis, language teaching, TESOL, study of translation, and so on. But this implication is the microscopical view of applied linguistics. Now another implication of the applied linguistics is the macroscopical view which concludes many interdisciplinary studies of linguistics. For example, macro- scopical studies of applied linguistics are the sociolinguistics, psychol- inguistics, computerlinguistics, and various studies of language problems about the mass media, philosophy, politics, science, arts, sports and so on. The central study of applied linguistics is the language education according to the microscopical view. The present problems of applied linguistics are the practical studies of language education, cultural linguistics, computer- linguistics, sociolinguistics, textlinguistics, stylistics, lexicology and media language.
